Sweet aroma, beautiful chestnut color, very little head, sweet hoppiness with lite carbonation and dry finish. Excellent brew. RAUCHFEST (122) - PROSPECT PARK, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2002
one of the first christmas beers i tried in the early 90's it seems to be the same and still has those flovors that seem difficult to achive by just using malt. i miss the old labels with santa skating with a barrel under his arm Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2001
Fairly pleasant. I don't taste any spices, but I agree with everyone about it being a fine Vienna. Reminds me a lot of Negra Modelo. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2002
This attractive dark, reddish brown brew was the highest rated Winter beer at a tasting I hosted a week ago. On the Ratebeer scale, it averaged a 4.2 overall score among 10 raters and beat out the Winter offerings from the following brewers (in order): Full Sail, Anderson Valley, Hales, Goose Island, Sierra Nevada, Deschutes, Redhook, Pete's, Summit, Lake Superior and Shiner. On my list, it tied for 4th, with Sierra Nevada's 2002 Celebration and Deschute's Jubelale tied for #1. PhillyBeer2112 (2944) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2000
Labelled as a Christmas beer - unsure why. The description above
is pretty much my review. A really good beer.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a nice large head. Malty caramel aroma, sweet and very drinkable.
